The all-new Genesis GV80 crossover barely had time to hit the market when it almost immediately took part in ANCAP crash tests. Considering the premium segment in which the Genesis GV80 is located, it is not surprising that all tests were passed by the Korean SUV perfectly and it received a final 5 stars. For the crash test, the experts used the standard version of the cross with a 3-liter power unit. The vehicle weighs 2070 kg.
The total excellent mark was formed from such separately taken results as:
- 91% - safety of adult passengers and driver;
- 87% - child safety in the cabin;
- 66% is an indicator of the vulnerability of pedestrians in the event of a collision;
- 88% - rating for the work of safety devices.
As a result, the Genesis GV80 crash test turned out to be quite decent, but now in more detail.
So, the crossover withstands a frontal impact without any problems. All parts of the body of passengers are reliably protected, and the design of the front panel does not imply impressive injuries to the knees and hips, while the degree of protection does not depend on the height and position of the seated.
A collision with a deformable obstacle, as well as a side impact, was withstood by the crossover with dignity. The sensors installed on the dummies in the passenger compartment have shown that the degree of protection against such deformations is high. This allowed the GV80 to score the highest possible score for this test. Also, in a side collision, the passenger is securely secured in the seat, and he is protected from additional damage by a central airbag.
The Genesis GV80 crash test showed excellent performance of the advanced eCall system, which automatically alerts emergency services in the event of an accident involving a crossover. Also, the car is equipped with an automatic braking system, which is activated at the time of an accident and is excellent for preventing secondary impacts.
The dummies imitating children aged 6 and 10 also remained practically unharmed, which allowed the SUV to get the highest possible score here too. In a collision with a pedestrian, the bonnet provides significant impact mitigation, but the wrong position of the bumper can cause serious pelvic injuries.
The Genesis GV80 crash test also showed excellent performance of the autobraking system. She is able to react not only to vehicles moving in front, but also to detect pedestrians and cyclists Also, the crossover is equipped with:
- seat belt warning system;
- driver fatigue control system;
- an assistant keeping the car in a given lane;
- an assistant who recognizes road signs and limits the speed.
